My 2016 beauty favourites

2016 was the year where my passion for makeup and beauty really peaked, and it was a year where i got to try out a lot of new products. Below i have listed my favourites from this year.

Mac customize palette:

 

I got this palette in november and i have used it everyday since. It is the perfect palette for creating a smokey copper look to rock in the winter or autumn. The top row is matte shadows in the shades wedge and corduroy, and the bottom row is shimmers in the shades sable and coppering. I use the shade wedge everyday alone to define my crease or as a transition shade to most of my eyeshadow looks.

Maybelline new york  fit me luminous+smooth foundation:

 

This foundation is perfect for everyday use! It is dewy and gives the skin a smooth finish which is perfect for my dry skin. It gives a light coverage, which makes the makeup look more natural. This also means that it doesnt cover up redness or any imperfections, but it gives the skin a nice even look, and any imperfections i just cover up with concealer. This foundation is also the only drugstore foundation i have ever tried that actually matches my very pale skin. I got it in the shade 110 porcelain.

NYX setting spray - Dewy finish:

This is a lifesaver! I got this setting spray in the summer because i felt like my makeup sort of melted of my face and became cakey through the warm summer days and i have used it everyday since. It keeps the makeup in place all day long and if you got dry skin this is the setting spray for you. As the name says it gives a nice dewy finish, which makes the skin look healthy and fresh, and if you use powder products the spray makes the produts melt in with the foundation.

Maybelline volum' express lash sensational mascara - waterproof:

I have tried a lot of new mascaras this year and this one is the one i've always gone back to. If you got straight lashes like me this is the perfect mascara for you. It gives you beautiful voluminous lashes, and the curvy brush gives the lashes af beautiful curl. I got the mascara in waterproof because it will make the curl last all day long.

Dior 5 couleurs lift - 642 lifting amber:

This palette contains three eyeshadows, an eye primer and eyebrow gel. To be honest i'm not a fan of the eyeshadows.. i don't think they are very pigmented and they are hard to blend out, which is a shame, because i really like the colours. The only eyeshadow i use is the light marble shade, which i use to highligt under the eyebrows. But the reason why i put this in my favourites is because of the brow gel. It is the best gel i have ever tried! It gives the brow a nice natural definition, but you can build up the colour if you want a more dramatic brow.

Maybelline eye brow st. drama:

This brow gel is amazing! It keeps the brows in place all day long and it last really long. I got this a year ago and there is still product left in the bottle. It is a tinted brow gel and i got it in the shade dark brown. I use it on days where i wear a full face of makeup and on makeup-free days where i want to give my eyebrows definition, and it is perfect for both occasions.

Max factor creme puff blush:

I got this blush in the shade 20 lavish maue, and it is a perfect shade for summer or for the more subtle makeup-looks. It has a slight sheen to it which means it can work as a combined blush and highlighter. I like to use this on days where i don't contur or highlight and just go for a natural look.

NYX liquid lipstics:

The lipsticks i have used the most this years is NYX's liquid lipsticks and one jumbo lip pencil. My favorites is the NYX jumo lip pencil in the shade deep red, NYX lip lingerie in the shade exotic and NYX soft lip cream in the shade Cannes.
